Lainey Wilson added her signature Bell Bottom Country flair to the Rolling Stones’ iconic hit, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”
“The Rolling Stones are global music icons. To have the opportunity to record one of their tracks was an incredible honor for me,” Wilson shared in a press release. “I had so much fun recording this track and I’m so grateful that I got to bring my bell bottom country flare to one of their greatest hits.”
The track opens with the Louisiana native’s pristine vocals on full display as she sings, “I saw her today at the reception / A glass of wine in her hand / I knew she would meet her connection / At her feet was her footloose man.”
With a touch of twang, Wilson croons, “You can’t always get what you want / You can’t always get what you want / You can’t always get what you want / But if you try sometimes, well you just might find / You get what you need.”
The tempo picks up, and the award-winning star is joined by a choir. She continues to add a bit of funk to her rendition of The Rolling Stones classic, making it her own.
“I put a lil extra #bellbottomcountry on @RollingStones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and it’s out now on Stoned Cold Country,” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “Man… if I haven’t had to learn that lesson time and time again. This song leaves me shaking my head, smiling at myself, and feeling grateful.”
